August 24th, 2016 — We love Aerial Yoga Play at the Black Swan Temple!  So do our clients!  After all, who wouldn’t love learning and practicing how to fly and do inversions and cool exercises that help you to remember how to easily change planes of existence!

Heather Salmon is a certified Aerial Yoga Play teacher, as well as being a certified Anahata Yoga Teacher, Sound Healer, Reiki Master and Clinical Hypnotherapist, and we are so fortunate to host Jen Healy, creator of the practice, when she travels to Maui to do workshops and to spend some personal rejuvenation time!

Here is a great resource for anyone who loves or would like to learn more about the practice.  Check out Jen’s Aerial Yoga Play Youtube Channel!  She has loaded over 1000 educational videos with over 300,000 hits since 2011.


Let your yoga take flight and swing your way into feeling fit while having fun!

Aerial Yoga Play (AYP & AYRx) combines all the benefits of traditional yoga- flexibility, strength and balance – with the unique conditioning of aerial dance and acrobatics for an exhilarating new way of approaching yoga. Sculpt your body in the air, using our special yoga swings, as you tone muscles, find balance, and increase flexibility.

Aerial Yoga Play allows a combination of benefits similar to yoga, aerial dance, pilates, suspended resistance training, acrobatics, and aerial silks all rolled into one for an amazing suspended fitness experience.

The Sound Healing journeys were the most magical and spiritual experiences of my life. It was the most amazing experience ever! — Candy C, (Bronx, NY) Feb 2016

Heather and Donny provided such a safe space for me to let go of what I was wanting to let go of. On our first night they asked us about our intentions and I feel like they kept that in mind the whole time we were there. The sound healing really took me to a whole other level.  Every time I would go to another world!  — Janalyn R., Saskatoon, Canada (May 2016)

Personally my experience was too much to be able to put into mere words but to say I am a changed person after attending the Maui Mystical Alchemy experience is an understatement…. next level of my soul for sure. — Karlita W, Canada (May 2016)

Excellent I would rate it a 10/10 this exceeded any expectations I had.  This was the most extraordinary experience, Heather and Donny are the most gracious and welcoming couple and the sound healing is exceptional. — Maree B, Australia (June 2016)

Heather and Donny’s retreat space is a hidden treasure, an eco-oasis of peace and rejuvenation! —Rod and Isabella Price, Walnut Creek, CA (August 2016)

Mystical Alchemy Ceremonies bring sound healing, music and ritual together in an inspiring and transformational way. Innovative visionary mystics Heather Salmon and Donny Regal bring decades of experience as professional prayerformers, healers and agents of change.

Each journey is unique and their sound baths are deeply relaxing and healing for the mind, body and spirit. Mystical Alchemy ceremonies incorporate sacred and uplifting music, as well as the vibrational frequencies of 432 hz crystal singing bowls, chimes, vocal toning, guided imagery, isochronic tones and binaural beats to assist with brainwave entrainment which is believed to affect cognition, stress management, and detoxification on a cellular level.

This Leo New Moon with the Sun being the ruling planet reminds us that we are powerful, we are creators and our mission is to align with our true Self, and embody our true essence like the lion who is regal, all mighty and magnificent!

Let your light shine! Where there is light there is love, and love is what the world needs most right now. As the light of truth is now blasting fully on those outdated ways of being that are based on fear and confusion, it is only through our love for humanity and the planet that we will be able to transform obsolete systems of oppression.

We are however only able to go as far into the shadow as our light will take us … as far as our love will take us.  We are being called to midwife the change and birth is not always pretty but midwives are strong enough to be present through even the most challenging and difficult parts of labor.

As midwives to the Great Change we are being called to be present to some uncomfortable parts of history that lay at the root of oppression and institutionalized injustice.  The only way to heal injustice is to reveal it and to be present to the pain and the consequences of our actions so that we can make the necessary course corrections.  As time has past it is easy to forget what has happened and how the actions of a few have become institutionalized systems and practices that are currently still oppressing many in order to create favorable conditions for a few.

Are you willing to be a conduit of healing by offering your heart and presence to what is needing to be uprooted and transformed in order to create a more balanced, just and peace filled world?

New Moon Gathering is a time for our Rainbow Ohana to come together for peace and unity … for equality, for justice, for the aina and the keiki and the next Seven Generations to come. Together we are powerful. Together we are transforming the world!  Peace begins with us! Let’s rise together!
